At Mindful Mother we believe the care a family receives during pregnancy, birth, and early infancy has an effect on the long-term wellbeing of the entire family. We have witnessed that family who have been lovingly and respectfully cared for and honoured throughout their childbearing journey have a tremendous capacity to be fully emotionally and spiritually prepared for parenthood. We truly believe that feeling respected, honoured, and supported while giving birth is key is reducing the occurrence of birth trauma and subsequent postnatal depression.
We belong to a culture with a long history of traumatic birthing experiences. The key to changing the way we experience and facilitate birth is by supporting empowered families who understand their birthing options and seek family centered care in childbirth.
Education is power.
